is that the sign of chicken pox?

(dd2 - 9 months old - had her 8 mths check today and i noticed she is covered in spots this morning all over so docs said maybe c. pox or heat rash. She was crying alot yesterday but happy today)

never heard of green poo with c.pox
my DCs have had green poo but only when taking an antibiotic medicine grin

fone the doctor if you are worried

also...have you changed her food
could it be what she has eaten, at 9mo you are prob trying new tastes and flavours for her smile

ds1 was a little off colour in the few days leading up to his first cp spot (after which he was fine). i distinctly remember he had nasty yucky green poo during those few days as we were away for the christening of a friend's dd and he had to borrow some pink trousers as we had run out of clothes due to the exploding green poo. hth & good luck.

yes i know that her bowels would changed colours as ive seen it shock but this green is a very rich dark green colour like what newborns get.

dd2 got one blister by her private parts but the rest is just red pimples but she had been clingy and grumpy/crying. She is also teething too

teething - her tooth came thru 2 weeks ago and she didnt show much signs apart from a snotty nose and a red bum

my ds2 had green poo with CP from about 3 days before the first spot until they scabbed over.

well if no other blisters tmrw then i put it down to heat rash

ive looked closely to the pimples and some of them got white heads on them.
